LUBBOCK, TX--(Marketwired - September 07, 2016) - Anyone who looks forward to showcasing their home or business during the holiday season should begin their planning now, according to the holiday and event decorating experts at Christmas Decor, the premier holiday lighting and decorating company in North America. Members of the Christmas Decor franchise network work with home and business owners nationwide to design and install store top-quality, high impact holiday outdoor lighting, décor and special effects.
"There are a lot of reasons to bring in Christmas Decor decorators to manage your holiday decorating," said Brandon Stephens, president of Christmas Decor. "Our franchise members use professional-grade lighting and décor that delivers results that far exceed what the average home or business owner can achieve with consumer-grade décor. They also remove, inspect, repair and store decorations after the holidays. And, they help eliminate damage to moldings, roofing, architectural elements, and, most importantly, to the home or business owner."
Stephens offers the following statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) to underscore the dangers inherent in do-it-yourself holiday decorating:
- The CPSC estimates there were 15,000 injuries involving holiday decorating seen in emergency departments nationwide during November and December 2012.
- The EFSI warns that the prevalence of counterfeit products has increased over 10,000 percent in the past two decades, requiring extra vigilance on the part of consumers to confirm that the lights and electric holiday décor items they buy come from legitimate distributors and genuine manufacturers and do not present a fire hazard.
"Professional decorators are able to minimize these types of risks in outdoor displays with proper installation procedures, responsible sourcing and purchasing, and regular maintenance calls. Property owners who decide to install their own outdoor lighting display should review the 'Ladder Safety 101' tips from the CPSC and tips from ESFI on 'How to Avoid Counterfeits'," says Stephens. "But for a truly safe and spectacular alternative, schedule your holiday décor installation with your local Christmas Decor professionals soon before schedules fill up. Then use the time you save to enjoy the holidays with your friends and family."
